  • The Ukrainian Museum: CIM

  • Festival d’Avignon: Miss Knife

    By day, one of the most respected stage directors, actors, writers, and impresarios in Europe; by night, a cabaret chanteuse expunging life’s pain and love’s agony — this unusual artistic double identity comes together when the director of Festival d’Avignon, Olivier Py, makes a rare U.S. stage appearance in Olivier Py Sings “Les Premiers Adieux de Miss Knife.”

  • Photoville

    United Photo Industries brings Photoville to picturesque Brooklyn Bridge Plaza for it’s sixth year, transforming the park into an immersive photography village populated by more than 55 shipping containers repurposed into galleries.

In addition, the festival offers nighttime projection programs, hands-on workshops, an education day for New York City middle and high-school students (proudly supported by the New York City’s Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment), panel discussions and talks presented next door at St. Ann’s Warehouse, tents with vendors, family-friendly photo activities, publishers and gear demonstrations, a community photo book store run by Red Hook Editions, tintype portraits by the Penumbra Foundation, and a beer garden with a range of food vendors by Smorgasburg and Brooklyn Brewery beers. Photoville is open to the public—all ages, dogs included—free of charge.
